• Hello everyone!


    Greetings Antergos community!

    I got pointed here by @joekamprad who is kindly helping me out getting my shiny new Antergos installation up and running in another thread.

    My name is Jim, I’m English, and I live in Singapore.

    I’m a web dev and I’ve been an Apple user for about 10 years since I quit Windows. I’ve been getting progressively more and more fed up with the perfumed walled garden though, and roughly once a year I’ve looked at making the jump to Linux. Well I finally managed it a few months back and I’ve been a happy Ubuntu (Gnome 17.04 and then 17.10) user ever since. I haven’t felt the need to switch on my MacBook for anything more than Safari testing.

    After the surprisingly smooth but scary upgrade to 17.10 I’ve been feeling the allure of a rolling release distro, and after considerable research I’ve settled on Antergos. The initial installation was pretty painful due to Nvidia issues, but I managed to get up and running with Joe’s antergos-nvidia-17.9-2-x86_64.iso and I’m already getting help here ironing out a couple of small teething problems.

    I’m glad to have a new place to hang out, and hopefully I won’t need to bug you all for help too often ;)
